Our first win in the show ring - Comet's first point!     A hometown win is always very sweet     Comet's first Best of Breed win     This was the first of many good wins for us in the rain

BVISS Ch. Tarnish's Artic Streak, CGC, WTD, WPD, WWPDX, RN ("Comet")

We have been blessed with six beautiful malamutes so far. I have shown them all, and we've done our share of winning. Comet was our first show dog. We learned so much together. Showing is just one more way to spend time with my dogs. Try it - you might like it!

Hope at her first fun match     At Penny's first fun match, she took a Working Group 1     Xarri took Best of Breed and a Puppy Group 2 at this fun match in Burton, OH, on 4 July 2008.

Before we hit the show ring, we hit the fun matches. This is a fun and easy way to introduce your new puppy to the show ring. It doesn't count for points toward a championship, but it is excellent practice.

Comet winning Best Veteran in Sweeps at Cleveland OH     Comet repeated his win two days later for the Area Specialty     Comet taking a Veteran Group 1     Hope in her first veterans class at the 2007 National Specialty

Once the dogs reach 8 years of age, they are eligible for the Veterans class. A dog need not be a finished champion to enter this class. Comet, Glacier, and Hope have all participated in this class. It's amazing how many veterans behave more like puppies than the puppies do!
